HARPER'S BAZAAR

With its high-quality menu and high design, this rustic farm-to-table spot brings L.A vibes to the desert. Dishes that feel more dressed up than standard American fare (with a European touch) add a luxe feel to the experience here, but the flavors, ingredients and an impressive cocktail roster make the menu just as approachable as it is inventive. Standouts (for this season only) include a Wagyu beef carpaccio with truffle salsa, wood-fired pizza with daily special toppings and the house burger served on a brioche bun. If you're looking for a carnivorous break from Palm Springs typical veggie-focused fare, make a reservation for a dinner of perfectly cooked steak or decadent duck fat (yes, duck fat) fries.

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

A new wave of restaurants is silencing longtime complaints about a lack of great food in the desert. Leading the openings was the debut of farm-fresh Workshop Kitchen + Bar (800 N. Palm Canyon Drive) a year and a half ago, boasting a chic industrial design. "They do a chicken for two brought out on a wood platter that's spectacular," says ROAR Management's Bernie Cahill. Before dinner, stop into the year-old, indoor/outdoor BAR (340 N. Palm Canyon Drive), which Palm Springs International Film Festival director Darryl Macdonald recommends for its "retro craft cocktails, specialty beers and great music." It's opening an outdoor performance space in time for Coachella in mid-April.
